Author: Tom Spoletini


  • 3 links of Spolumbo’s Spicy Chicken
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3 cups onion (chopped)
  • 2 gloves garlic crushed
  • 2 – 28 oz. Cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 – 28 oz. Can tomato puree
  • 1 – 12 oz. Can tomato paste
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 ½ teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1-teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup chopped Italian parsley
  • ¼ cup fresh basil
  • 1 – pound pasta
  • Grated Parmesan or Romano cheese (optional)


Broil sausage for two or three minutes to partially cook. Slice to bite-size portions and set aside.

Coat the bottom of a deep skillet with olive oil and heat on low. Add the garlic and onion; simmer until the garlic is golden brown.

Add all other ingredients, including the sausage and bring to a slow boil over medium heat.

Simmer sauce for about two and a half hours. Boil and drain pasta. Spoon sauce over pasta and sprinkle with cheese.


So simple and quick to make. I sometimes substitute the sausages with Spolumbo’s Chicken Sundried Tomato & Basil instead of Spicy Chicken. It brings it all together.
